Guess that word means something different to me. Glad I don't live near you guys.
Right now I am in Texas and my neighbors are very respectable about private property. My nearest neighbor has pasture on both sides of mine. He always
comes up the front drive to ask if he can move his cows through my pasture to get the other side. He used to lease our place before we moved in...he could very easily assume he could go back and forth through our place. I always tell him that he can of moves his cows through of course.
By the way he was born and raised in Virginia....
Oh, and yes I do feel like shooting someone if they came through without asking and left gates open.
We had put a sort on a large amount of steers, and had them staged in a couple different pastures close to the corrals.
Someone came through the ranch during the night, didn't close the gates properly and the cattle had mixed. We had about 10 cattle trucks waiting on us to resort and load.....not happy, all could be avoided by some respect for private roads and property.
